Method:

First put the flour into a bowl, rub in the butter to resemble breadcrumbs, now add the fresh yeast and crumble in. Add the milk, water and sugar and make into a dough, tear and knead the dough for 10 minutes, add the salt and cinnamon and continue kneading for another 5 minutes. Put into a floured bowl and allow to rise for one hour until it is double in volume.

Knock back and add the prunes and orange peel.  Make into 75 g balls and place on to a tray. Allow to rise for another 25 minutes. Brush on an egg glaze and put into the oven at 190 deg. C., 375 deg. F. for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove and allow to cool. Serve toasted with butter.
